Adani Group reportedly in talks to acquire Orient Cement stake

India: Dow Jones Institutional News has reported that Adani Group is in talks with a ‘major shareholder’ of Orient Cement over a possible acquisition of the latter’s stake in the CK Birla Group company.

Orient Cement first began producing cement in Telangana in 1982, and has since spread to Karnataka and Maharashtra, with a cement production capacity of 8Mt/yr.

Orient Cement previously leased land in Maharashtra for a new grinding plant from coal-fired power plant Adani Power Maharashtra, an Adani Group subsidiary, in late 2021. Adani Group entered the cement sector following its acquisition of ACC and Ambuja Cements from Switzerland-based Holcim on 16 September 2022.
